A Concert in Aid of Action for Children

A special concert featuring the acclaimed Alcester Male Voice Choir, with the proceeds going to leading children’s charity Action for Children, is being held at Wesley Hall, Stratford Methodist Church in Stratford Old Town, on Saturday 11 September from 7.30pm.
The programme will feature an exciting range of traditional and modern male voice choir music from the 18th century to the present day.
Amanda Quinn, Action for Children’s Midlands Fundraiser, said: “Alcester Male Voice Choir has established a reputation for its energetic, passionate and enthusiastic performances, and this event will make a wonderful night out. We’re hugely grateful to the choir for performing this concert for us.”
Since it was founded 37 years ago, Alcester Male Voice Choir has sung in venues including Worcester Cathedral, Barcelona Cathedral and El Duomo in Florence, and has held successful tours to Cornwall, Germany, Austria, Spain and Italy.
The choir, which currently has more than 80 members, raises thousands of pounds for charity each year.
The concert at Stratford Methodist Church is being organised by Action for Children’s Stratford Support Group, which works tirelessly for the charity throughout the year. The group raises funds for Action for Children’s life-changing work with vulnerable and disadvantaged children through events including street collections, market stalls, coffee mornings and fashion shows.
